This months Birchbox is a good one – the theme this month is ‘Free Your Mind’. The box as you may be able to tell allows you to get creative and customise and colour in the box however you like! I’m so excited about this – I’m such a big kid, I love colouring in ha! Not only that but if you share your creation with Birchbox you may even win £500 worth of goodies from the Birchbox shop!! Yes please. Let’s see what’s in May’s Birchbox..
WAH Nails The WAH Girl Press On Nails
This month Birchbox gave us subscribers the choice between 3 WAH London products – nail polish, a nail art pen or press on nails. I love press on nails as they are so easy and quick to apply so I chose these. I didn’t know what design I was going to get however I really love the one I got. I can’t wait to wear these and see how long they stay on my nails for!
Number 4 Lumiere d’Hiver Reconstructing Masque
This is a hair mask by a brand I’m new to, Number 4. I haven’t used many hair masks in the past but I’m looking forward to giving this a go and to see the results it gives, a full bottle is pretty pricey at £36.00 so you’d hope that it’s a good product! I do however wish it didn’t come in a satchet – I hate nothing more than samples that come in satchets.
Mirenesse Mattfinity Lip Rogue in No. 3 New York
This lip rogue is gorgeous – No.3 New York is an orange toned Red shade and looks absolutely stunning on the lips. It also smells sooo good – I think it’s quite like a pic ‘n’ mix sweet smell! Yummy. This is meant to be a matte lip product, however I wouldn’t say its that matte. It’s not drying at all and is comfortable to wear – even a bit moisturising so it’s a winner in my books. I’ll be wearing this a lot.
PARLOR by Jeff Chastain Moisturising Sea Salt Spray
I was so happy to see a sea salt spray in this months box.. I always say I will buy one and try to achieve that gorgeous beach hair look I always lust for but I never actually buy one. So I will definitely be trying this out, I really hope it delivers.
RMK Point Make Up Remover
I’ve already used this make up remover from RMK and I’m really impressed. It is so good at removing make up, I would say even better than the micellar waters I use. However, it does feel a little odd on my skin, it has quite a greasy feel to it and it did put me off a bit, I will keep using it but I doubt I would ever buy it.
Caudalie Radiance Tinted Moisturizer
The last product is from Caudalie and it is their Radiance Tinted Moisturizer in the shade 01 Light, I thought it would be the perfect match, however having swatched it I do think it will be a little dark for me which is a bit of shame.
That’s that for May’s Birchbox, I’m really happy with the contents of this box. I will use pretty much everything which is a bit rare for me with beauty boxes, the only disappointment is the Caudalie Tinted Moisturizer, other than that I love everything!
